Green Lab, our citizen science and action program designed by young people to protect, monitor and increase tree canopy within the Greater Perth area will be coming to Vic Park during the school holidays on the 8th and 9th of July. The Town of Victoria Park has awarded Millennium Kids a grant to hold a free two day hub for kids that live in the Town to develop urban greening ideas to benefit the whole community. The Town’s Urban Forest Grants enable community members, groups and organisations to deliver their own project to contribute to the greening of the Town. This is an exciting opportunity to create a lasting legacy that will influence the Town for generations to come and we are very excited to have youth voice creating solutions and continuing to deliver projects in the Town.

Up to 40 kids will develop solutions through project based learning and MK’s skills for life process to benefit their local community.The 2 day event will provide kids with a range of hands on skills with site visits to Jirdarup Bushland, Rutland Food Tree Project and Forster Avenue Reserve. They will develop their own project with the support of MK mentors and be provided context around urban forest issues and opportunities. At the close of the event kids will pitch their ideas to local stakeholders, with one idea being granted seed funding to progress their concept.
